    Oh man, that's nice. I used to have a Robert Cray Strat in that finish. It looks even better in person.

    I've got an older Inca Silver Player Strat (partscaster) that now has a greenish tint at certain angles.....it's such an awesome color!

    Seems to be another FSR for the UK only, dang it. The Player Strat comes in "Silver" in the US, but it's a darker silver.

    The Inca Silver in that ad, at least they way it was photographed, looks slightly gold-ish. I also kind of prefer that color combination with a rosewood board.

    I still do. And as much as I love the look of this guitar with a rosewood fretboard, I've tried different necks on it and it looks fine with maple. You don't really see it much when you play it, but you sure feel it and hear it...

    It's a beautiful color. If that Player strat from Andertons was available in rosewood, I have would ordered one already.

    While the maple does looks good, it looks so much better with the rosewood board in my opinion. ;)

    I really like that color combination, one of my favorites.

    Did you buy one?

    Dear God that is nice.

    I had a '97 AM STD in Inca/Maple for almost 20 years, before I sold it a few years ago.

    Loved the colour (and the smell of it) and have always regretted selling it.

    Nah, not flashy enough for my taste :whistling:
    Back in the Capri Orange thread, some folks said they would prefer Inca Silver to... well, Silver, so it's probably good news for them :D
